Abstract : The phenomenon of anomalous propagation, or beyond-the-horizon radio propagation, across Bass Strait in south-eastern Australia is discussed in relation to meteorological profiles measured from an instrumented aircraft. Particular attention is given to two time intervals December 14 to 19, 1974 and February 18 to 25, 1975.
